Welcome to Open 4 Funding

Open 4 Funding uniquely enables you to provide an enhanced support service for local businesses, community groups, public sector bodies or students without having to commit additional resources or staff time.

The portal provides comprehensive coverage of all available funding opportunities, including European Union, national Government programmes, regional schemes and local initiatives, and is kept fully up to date by an in-house research team.

It also includes a number of proactive features that offer users additional value. They can set up automatic email alerts so they are first to know when relevant new or updated funds are added, as well as signing up to weekly newsletters packed with the latest funding announcements.

Users access the Open 4 Funding portals via an email-based registration process, giving you vital intelligence on who is using the service. Full monthly statistical breakdowns are also provided to help evaluate the portal’s impact and help you demonstrate its value for money.
